It's hard to know really since the RDF/XML does not
conform to the syntax in the M&S spec:

 [1] http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-rdf-syntax/#grammar

The a:status element appears to match a typedNode (rule 6.13
in [1]) and typedNodes are not allowed to contain CDATA.

FYI - the W3C has an online service for validating RDF:

A change that will make this legal RDF (and I have no idea if 
this is what you are trying to model) is to add a parseType="Resource" 
attribute to the a:status element.
